The Pople has died, as most of the world knows, and I have found it is a much larger issue here in Europe than it was in the States. There was almost full time coverage on the news right before he died and, of course, when he did. The funeral was shown on every tv station from beginning to end. Maurice and I went to Notre Dame when a mass was done for his soul the day after his death. We couldn’t even get near the cathedral. The huge area in front was packed with people. There was a huge screen set up outside so that the mass inside the cathedral could be seen. Everyone seems very moved by his death. He did do alot of work trying to bring peace between countries.
